    A job interview

    The document is a scene from “the Devil Wears Prada”. It’s Andrea Sachs’s job interview. Andrea wants to be Miranda’s assistant.

     Miranda is the director of a fashion magazine called Runway. She is a terrifying person. She is extravagant and authoritarian.

    Emily is her assistant. She is very stressed because she wants to be a perfect assistant. She doesn’t want to introduce Andrea to Miranda because she thinks she is not a good candidate for the job.

    According to Miranda Andrea doesn’t have the necessary qualities but the latest thinks she has the experience: she has studied journalism at university and she has won a national competition for college journalism.

    Andrea is not glamorous or skinny, she is not fashionable either, that’s why Emily takes her ugly bag before the interview/ the meeting.  She doesn’t know much about fashion and she doesn’t read Runway.

     Miranda doesn’t pay attention to Andrea. She is not interested. She already has an idea about the young woman but Andrea wants to defend/ to stand up for herself that’s why she says she is smart and she learns fast.


    Wednesday, October 24th

    During the interview, Miranda doesn’t listen to Andrea but her attitude doesn’t mean that she doesn’t want Andrea as an assistant.

    Miranda is going to hire Andrea but she’s going to be very nasty and demanding with her. Miranda already has an opinion about Andrea so the later will have to prove that she can work in such a company.
